Sturridge tips Gerrard to manage Liverpool in future

By on January 31, 2015

Even after announcing his exit from the club, news about Steven Gerrard will continue to rent the air at the Merseyside for another 4 months. In a recent report, another of Gerrard’s teammate Danny Sturridge believes that the club’s captain will still return to the club in a managerial capacity in the future.

After about two decades of admirable service at Liverpool, Gerrard will be moving to the United States MLS Outfit, LA Galaxy at the end of the season after he turned down a contract extension with the club he loved so dearly. Sturridge has revealed that he feels very bad about the captain’s decision to leave but added that the managerial seat awaits him when he retires from professional football.

While speaking to the BBC Radio 5Live, the striker stated that he lacks the required words to explain what the captain has done for the club over the last 20 years. Sturridge added that Gerrard remains one of his role models who he and everyone in the squad looks up to. The former Chelsea forward noted that Gerrard will be sorely missed especially as he remains the one player who has given him lots of experience while also helping him develop both personally and professionally.

Sturridge who is expected to make a return to the team after a lengthy injury lay off believes that the club will have a hard time trying to replace such an awesome player whose influence works lots of magic both on the pitch in the dressing room. After a rehabilitation spell at the United States, the striker revealed that the mental side of his game has been greatly improved during the period when he was out of action.

Danny Sturridge explained that although the experience is very frustrating, it has been a learning curve which has helped him learn new things.
